Please see ODBD Blog for all the details!

This is what I created.

For my new I am using the newly released ODBD's "Butterfly Corner"! For the old some design paper that I have been hording.

The lovely image was stamped and colored using copic markers. After coloring the image I used a versamark pen and clear embossing powder to emboss the butterfly and flowers. Glitter was also added to the butterflies wings. Old olive was stippled over the greenery and Ranger's Broken China was used for the sky. The K&Co DP was embossed using a Tim Holtz E/F

Please stop by and leave a little love on the beautiful creations of these talented Challenge Team members!

We hope you will play along with us! We would love to see your wonderful creations in  the New Year!

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!
